Tiruppur job working units can import machinery under EPCG
Feb '17
Job working units like knitting, dyeing, compacting, printing, embroidering, labelling, calendaring etc, registered as Common Service Provider (CSP) in Tiruppur are now permitted to import machinery under Export Promotion Capital Goods (EPCG) Scheme. The Central government scheme allows import of capital goods including spares at zero duty.
“The new relaxation in condition for registration with indirect tax authorities’ paves way for this much expected and required relief to the job working units in Tiruppur cluster,” Tiruppur Exporters’ Association (TEA)  president Raja M Shanmugham said in a press release.
However, currently CSP units located in Tiruppur (Town of Export Excellence) only are eligible to import machinery under EPCG Scheme and the units located outside Tiruppur town are not eligible. Shanmugham said he would be taking up the issue with the commerce ministry to give a relaxation in this condition also, as more number of job working units are located in the periphery of Tiruppur town in places like Uthukuli, New Tiruppur, and Palladam. Dyeing/printing units are located in Perundurai SIPCOT premises. (RKS)
